2010 Syrah - Ciel du Cheval Vineyard : Red Mountain
We’ve come to expect rich dark fruit in our Syrah from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard…and maybe just a few savory notes to keep us guessing. We are showing the Tablas Creek clone of Syrah originally sourced from Chateau de Beaucastel of Châteauneuf-du-Pape by the Perrin family. The clones were propagated in the Tablas Creek Vineyard of California and on to Ciel du Cheval where they are making a wonderfully deep rich wine with significant chaulky tannins common to Red Mountain and valued when properly cellared over time.
Bottled on 7/21/12; 50 cases were produced; Alcohol: 14.79% pH 3.55, TA 6.64 g/L.
100% Syrah (Ciel du Cheval Vineyard)
Barrels: This wine was aged for 22 months in 50% new American oak from Canton Cooperage and the balance seasoned French oak from Saury in conjunction with French oak infusion additions by Canton Cooperage.
